It looks scruffy but if you are in need of a loader/tractor, then this one is worth looking at. The rest is negotiation. The good thing is that they do hold their value fairly well when they are this old.

I just talked to the seller and it has been repowered with a CCKA from a Gravely. The spare engine offered in the listing is the original CCKA. I tried to buy just the engine for possible spare parts but he wasn't willing to let it go without the tractor.

It doesn't have the backhoe subframe mounting ears and I think the model number would be 646B. Somebody will probably get a heck of a deal on that one.
Why do none of them ever have the steering pedestal inspection cover? I'm going to get my son to make about a dozen when he makes mine. If you see this Brian can you let me know what they run retail.

I would like to reserve one from his first batch, my 646 was missing the cover as well. I believe that my brother shelled out $110 for a new one and it took Brian a few weeks to get it. Is it really that difficult to reinstall those things before they get lost or destroyed?

Good question because I have voiced the exact same rant for years. To me, the missing tower cover sends up red flags about the quality of maintenance. The job isn't over until the machine has been put back together totally and the tools have been cleaned and put away.

My 648 came with a makeshift sheet metal cover. I did buy a replacement, and it was over $100. I took the old one off and gave it to another 646 owner who's cover was missing. Since the replacement was gloss black I decided to leave it off until I repainted the tractor. The problem is that I use the 648 all the time, and have not wanted to have it out of commission long enough to repaint, and fix the sloppy front end. SO the cover has been off for the last three years. Once you get used to it, you don't even miss it.
